DNA: Panel indicts SP, BJP leaders for Muzaffarnagar riots

Two years after the communal violence, which claimed the lives of at least 60 people and displaced over 50,000 in western Uttar Pradesh, Justice Vishnu Sahai, a retired Allahabad High Court judge, submitted his 775-page report to the U.P. Governor Ram Naik on Wednesday, who will forward it to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to take action. Sahai, who recorded the statements of 478 people, which included 101 officials, told Zee News that his investigation pursued four tracks: causes of riots, who was responsible, response of authorities, and measure riots to stop reoccurrence.
